This one shouldn’t surprise you folks. When taking a look at the bottom of a leaked spec sheet comparing the DROID 3, DROID 2 Global, and DROID X2, it gives some details about a Gingerbread update for the D2. Anyone still waiting for some Android 2.3.3 action on their DROID 2 will have to wait a little longer, as it looks like Verizon expects the phone to be getting an update “soon after” the DROID 3 is launched.
This is looking to be exactly like the DX versus the DX2. We were told that the original DX would be getting Gingerbread sometime in early May, but suddenly the update was delayed until the day of the DX2′s release date. It looks like the company doesn’t want customers seeing two phones with similar specs and the same Android OS, then pick the cheaper one. It’s smart selling, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get angry about it. The only thing that is good about this is that Motorola’s Gingerbread builds haven’t been the most stable, so that means they have more time to get it ready and polished for a mid-late July release.
